insult to injury .. electrical help needed
well have to tattle on myself
.. was on several rides this weekend in very off trail heavily wooded area, extreme side hill canted / leaning to left driver side going around some Potlatch gates up on the bank.
well the damn rig went dead in the water, found rig blew a fuse and had to be towed out by a Rhino
to flat ground .. found the issue and used one of the other fuses in the block to get it up and running .. about half hour same thing going around another Potlatch gate and yup again it did the same thing so again abandoned another system and stole that fuse after being towed back to straight but still headed up hill and we had to turn around and while doing that again blew the fuse again... only now no extra fuses so towed it back around and lifted drug it back nose down and towed it back over lots of logs and berms to get it back on a road .. found a dirt bike with a 10 amp fuse after an hour looking and then hightailed it back to camp .. no stores in 20 or so miles and it was Sunday in rural north Idaho / no one would be open anyway
so here is the million $$ question .. in the fuse block top left fuse is for what system ?? [no manual yet here and I have not started to track down the issue yet] and the smart azz answer is the system that makes it run LOL I know that answer as all my friends were well into my sh** as they all have Rhino's
so now the rest of the story .. back in camp I took off the fuse cover and just happened to turn over the cap/cover and there was a spare fuse LOL
AND MY FRIENDS WIFE GOT A PIC of me being towed
by their Rhino
